Networking Done Right 

Allstream’s fibre optic network gives businesses the advantage of reliable, high-speed communication

A company’s telecommunications network is fundamental to succeeding in a competitive marketplace. As the single most relevant competitor in Canada to Bell and TELUS serving business customers, Allstream is a coast-to-coast provider of competitive, innovative, end-to-end IP communication solutions.
Allstream, which in an earlier incarnation built Canada’s first virtual private voice network (in 1988) and opened up the Canadian long distance market to competition (in 1992), provides small, medium and large businesses with voice, data and Internet services. These services enable the businesses to manage their costs, improve collaboration and ultimately increase productivity.
Allstream is a Canadian leader in delivering network solutions, such as SIP Trunking, in the emerging areas of IP convergence and unified communications. “Our reputation for innovation and offering Canadian businesses fast, reliable and secure access to leading-edge IP services is well-earned,” says Keith Irish, Allstream senior manager, corporate communications. “Over 50,000 customers rely on us and that number is growing; clients include NAV Canada, Starbucks, Tangerine and WestJet.” For the Toronto 2015 Pan Am/Parapan American Games, Allstream will provide connectivity and communications for 10,000 athletes and officials as well as 20,000 staff and volunteers.
Allstream’s 30,000 kilometre fibre optic network connects customers coast-to-coast and into other networks in 70 plus countries. But arguably one of the most impressive aspects of the company is the Allstream Service Guarantee. “We focus on providing highly personalized and consistent communication to our customers,” says Irish. “Whatever the need, we assign one expert to deal with things from start to finish and our delivery dates are guaranteed. This sets us apart from our competitors.”
Although, Allstream recently celebrated its 3,000th building connection, the company has no intention of resting on its laurels. Irish says, “We’re staying true to our mission to be Canada’s most innovative, agile and customer-focused communications provider dedicated exclusively to the business market.”
